Durian Cream Puff

So many things happened lately that I dont even wanna think abt it anymore.. the bottom line is I am grateful.. I am glad and most of all I feel blessed.. last Monday was one terrifying day for me and I hope that I dont hv to go thru that anymore.. Thank you all for ur prayers.. truly appreciated it.. everything is ok now.. things are slowly getting back to normal... my mind is no longer focusing on one thing.. Alhamdullilah.. :o)

That night we had iftar at moms.. wasnt planned but we managed to get it organised.. I prepared baked pasta as main meal.. did konnyaku chocolate jelly and durian cream puff as desert.. sis wati cooked chicken korma and BIL cooked Roti John.. it was a last minute thingy but we ended up with lots of food.. glad that everyone was there for us to share the so called semi good news..

So anyway lets not talk abt that anymore.. this was one of the deserts that I had prepared to take to Moms.. durian puff is one of moms fav desert.. I knew that sis Lyn and family were not big fans of durian but I cant do much since I dont hv enough eggs to make cream puff fillings.. I whipped out my own durian cream filling recipe and this was what i got.. I will definately add more durian flesh next time to gv that durian kick cream puff taste hehehe..

Ohhh and guess what.. finally my 1 1/2 yrs old Acer lappy died on me two nights ago.. hb had tried to revive it back but.. poor hb.. he stayed up till after 1am to fix it but to no avail.. sigh.. I was pretty frustrated with my lappy cos this was the second time that it had died on me.. dont see any reason to send it for repair either so what did hb do yesterday?? he got me a new lappy.. horrahhhh and this time round its a HP.. woot woot hehehe.. ty babe.. ur there when I needed a shoulder to cry on... u were there to listen to all my woos.. ur there when it comes to shopping hehehe.. love u to bits!!

Congratulation! Alhamdulillah, problem almost settle.

BTW, kalo nak tambah durian tu banyak mana ek?

Anyway, my son will complete his first degree in about 3 years. and he was awarded with JPA scholarship. Alhamdulillah, tak yah fikir pasal duit tapi kena tetap berdoa supaya dia sihat dan berjaya untuk dunia dan akhirat.
